My T3 TDI is about to reach 20k miles. I would like to inspect/change the cabin air filter. Does anyone know how to access this? I can't find anything on it. Thanks!

Easy job if you don't mind working under the dash with a headlight.
I did mine today and found that the last time the filter was changed (by a dealer), the plastic latch on the "door" that holds the filter in was broken off and replaced with a screw. This is a common problem so be careful taking the cover off. A new part is around $100 so I'm keeping the screw. God bless the flat rate system.

It is situated at the back of the passenger (front) footwell. You need to remove the plastic cover underneath first and then you will see the fan housing , the cover for the filter is there too. Hope this helps. regards

Dealership also broke my cabin air filter latch. I don't think the service person knew how to take it off and wrestled with it.
